A Decent Weekend

For once well have a decent weekend. I've been thinking of going to the Milwaukee zoo tomorrow. I'll feel out of place but what better place to people and animal watch. I can see which species acts more civilized,LOL. I hate going by myself, but my closest friend has to work and she has no children I can take to the zoo. There is no way I can talk my 23 year old son into going with me. He wouldn't even let me take him out for a welcome home drink. He still thinks it's not cool to be seen with mom.
I'll have to remember to bring my camera and notebook. I hope they still sell beer at the zoo...they'd have to,it is Milwaukee.

The zoo is one of the coolest places in Milw. They had some snow leopards there a few years back and these things would park it right at the edge of the cage, which in turn was maybe two feet from the crowd control railing. You could actually reach out and touch them, but I didn't. Not worth the risk.

I am shocked how much parking and admission has gone up. Last time I went it was $3 for parking and $5 or $6 to get in.
Zoo Admission Beginning April 1, 2006
Adults: $9.75
Seniors: $8.75
Children: $6.75
Children (2 and under): Free
Milwaukee County residents with I.D. receive $1.75 off regular admission. On Wednesdays, Milwaukee County residents are admitted at a reduced rate of $4.50 for adults and seniors and $2 for juniors (ages 3 to 12).
Parking is $8. Group and educational rates are available.
Rates subject to change.

$9.75+$8.00+$20.00(gas,round trip)+ food and drink= too damn much

I am not going.......
